If your running 200/200 your overclocking your card correct? Maybe your overclocking it too much? Try backing the card down to it's stock settings and run the games again. You may have hit the wall...the overclocking limits of your card/gpu/memory.

I have a Hercules Prophet 2MX and the stock settings for gpu and memory are 175/183 respectively. What drivers are you running? Try using a later driver release...12.0 or 12.4 detonator drivers for your card...good luck.

Try different drivers, like the 6.50 to start...

Try using the NVmax app and the registry hack for changing the clock speeds of the GPU and memory, bring them down and see if that stops the lockups.

I doubt the specs for a regular MX are that high, you may be mistaken or have purchased a PRO model.

yup, it's not a normal mx, its a "mx 400" and its hercules made and its default setting is 200/200 if dun believe me go http://us.hercules.com/products/product.php3?id=6
and read this review tt piss me off
try everything and still couldn't work

Yikes, they are right... it is 200/200. Well, did changing the drivers work? If you underclock Black/White plays, so it sounds like the GPU is weak and causing the lockups.
